SE, glad to know that you're doing fine (aside from the computer)
If you know the problem is NOT your internet service, your modem or your router, I'd be happy to give you an extra laptop (I just bought a new one -- cool Asus "zenbook" with a SSD). The old computer is a Dell laptop that was top of the line back in 2005. It runs Windows XP and works perfectly. The battery, however, doesn't really keep a charge any longer but can be replaced (I presume).
It is free to anyone else if SE doesn't want it. Just email me.
